|Classic Commercials for Defunct Products, Part 4 - Matthew Paul Argall|
A fourth compilation video that I (Argall) edited together, containing commercials for products and brands which are no longer available. The commercials are from the 1950s and 1960s. Sometimes the brand is still around but the exact product is gone, while in other cases both the product and brand are gone. The commercials range from "very good" to "very bad". Some of these come from the Adviews section, most do not.

|Classic Commercial for Post's Sugar Crisps|
A Classic 1950's Commercial for Post's Sugar Crisps. Cheap, but cute. DISCLAIMER: This video does not represent the quality of major Hollywood cartoons of the time. Nor does it represent the quality of major Tele-cartoons of the time ("Clutch Cargo" didn't air until several years after this commercial, so it doesn't count. Then again, "Clutch Cargo" was already crap by the standards of it's time). Heck, it stinks by the standards of most advertising cartoons of the time...

Aired 1957, here's three commercials for the ill-fated Edsel car (1958 model year?), which despite some innovative features ended up being a major commercial failure. The car is considered a sought-after classic today. This was back when a 60-minute show often had less than 10 minutes of commercials, but the commercials were often all for the same company!
